Color Overhaul

Here at the Hoot's Nest we don't shy away from color. In fact, our house in Iowa was saturated with color.

And our new home is no exception. We brought the green of our living room in Iowa to the walls of our sun room and a new fresh green for the nursery.

Since time, money and energy have all been in short supply over the past year (we moved only 5 days after Lil Hoot was born), I have only painted the sun room. (My family was kind enough to paint the nursery for us prior to Lil Hoot's arrival last spring.) The time has come to tackle another room, and this time we are focused the room to which Lil Hoot will move once she has outgrown the nursery. It is currently a garish red and has a border of construction trucks that was peeling from the walls. I have nothing against red or construction equipment in general, but it just doesn't work for us. Lil Hoot's favorite color is orange, she always chooses orange, but we thought that orange might be a little too stimulating. We really want to encourage sleep in this room so we have chosen a more tranquil color...which I will reveal in due time. For now, the border is coming down and the primer is going up.
